Refurbished retail park on Christmas countdown

Barberry Developments has announced the completion of phase two of its £1 million transformation of the Phoenix Retail Park in Swansea, South Wales.

The refurbishment of the 20,000 sq ft former Halfords store was completed in August and new tenants could be up and running in time for Christmas. With retail chains B&M and Home Bargains already successfully operating from the retail park, there are now up to four units available, ranging from 2,000 sq ft to 35,000 sq ft.

Barberry, which acquired the first generation retail park in 2007, has carried out an extensive refurbishment of the retail park including replacing external cladding, internal refurbishment and improved access and car park layout. It is a well-established shopping destination with nearby retailers including Tesco Extra, Go Outdoors, Comet and Carpet Right.

Martyn Cartwright, director of Barberry, said: “As the project was a refurbishment not a rebuild, we are able to offer lower rents of £15-£16 per sq ft, rather than an average of £25 for the Swansea area. We are already in talks with several potential tenants who hope to secure a unit and open in time for the peak festive season.”

Phoenix Retail Park is ideally located within four miles of Swansea city centre and has excellent access to junctions 44/45 of the M4.  Barberry gained planning permission to improve the access roads from Phoenix Way into the retail park including a new access road from Fendrod Way to the front of the scheme.
